Notes from the Manager
Lydia and her co-workers have all previously appeared in the strips linked to above, in the "Related Strips."
I can't take credit for the name "Dye Another Day," which was the brainchild of my friend Cori Ann McHembree and keeps with the movie theme all the stores in the Multiplex 10's shopping center have (for no particularly good reason, honestly).
It is, in theory, located in the storefront between Flickhead Video and the Multiplex 10.
The Music Box Theatre is a real Chicago moviehouse that shows foreign and indie films, and it is indeed currently running Godard's Vivre Sa Vie (I saw it yesterday). Here is its trailer (which shows waaaay too much, I should warn you):
UPDATE (5/21): #358 is running late, but there is a short, self-contained preview/mini-strip over in the forum.
Multiplex 10 is here!
Although Multiplex 10 has ended, an animated prequel/reboot called Multiplex 10 was funded through Kickstarter in 2017 and is NOW AVAILABLE for rent or purchase on Vimeo On Demand, Amazon Video, and elsewhere! And an all-new, irregularly-updated Multiplex 10 web series (set after the short film) recently launched on YouTube! Learn more about the short film and web series on the official Multiplex 10 website!
